"Hey HelloTalkers! 😄So a few days ago Hellotalk ran a new year's competition asking its users to make a wish and Hellotalk would do its best to make that wish come true!
Well, the competition proved to be extremely popular with more than 2000 wishes submitted, including my wish!
❤My wish was to visit the Hellotalk head office someday!
I didn't think that my wish would ever come true, but it somehow did! 😍🙌🍻I managed to WIN a competition for the first time on this app!
Hellotalk promptly invited me to their head office which I gladly accepted of course!
🇬🇧✈️🇨🇳 After a few days I was all packed and ready for my 12 hour flight to Shenzhen, China from London!
I was beyond ecstatic to visit China for the first time in my life, 😭 but I also wasn't sure how I was going to survive in China without knowing much of the language!
So I decided to learn some Chinese by using the Hellotalk app beforehand 🤓 📞 and in the process made some wonderful Chinese friends!
Upon arriving in Shenzhen, I was greeted and welcomed by the wonderful Willow who is one of the staff at Hellotalk.
🙋 She briefly showed me around the city and explained how this small coastal city became known as "The Silicon Valley of China" as well as "China's Most Innovative City". 📲💻📷If you google Shenzhen you'll find it is a major city in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong with 100s of tech start-ups, which of course includes Hellotalk as well.
🍜🍱🍧 After showing me around and eating some of the finest local food, Willow finally took me to the Hellotalk office.
My wish came true! 😘 I was given the chance to walk around the office and take some pictures with the beautiful logo at the entrance to the office then finally was handed a hellotalk goody bag which included various Hellotalk branded stuff such as T-shirts, pens, stickers, etc.
😊 HelloTalk, thank you for everything!"
